Milledgeville GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Milledgeville, Georgia clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

Specimens we can test for DNA

The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the alleged father and child or children. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory.

Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone's DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Milledgeville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Milledgeville, GA - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Milledgeville, GA

Unless two Milledgeville parents are married at the time of their child's birth, both parents must properly establish paternity in the state of Georgia for the father to receive paternal rights. Paternity establishments are a legal process used to identify a child's biological father in cases of unmarried parents and will be necessary if the father wishes to have his name placed on the birth certificate.

In the state of Georgia, the simplest way to establish paternity is by completing a Paternity Acknowledgment Form. This form will be offered to both parents at the hospital or birthing facility and should be completed as soon as possible to streamline the establishment. Because this process is completely voluntary, it's important to ensure that there is full confidence in the given paternity claim; otherwise, DNA testing should be used prior to establishing paternity.

Difficulties Establishing Paternity in Milledgeville, GA

In certain paternity establishment cases, a parent may refuse to complete an acknowledgment form on the basis of paternity denial or general refusal. This refusal can become a frustrating situation, as it will prevent the father from seeking child custody or visitation as well as prevent both parents from requesting monthly child support services.

To properly establish paternity under these circumstances, the parent seeking the establishment will need to file a petition to establish paternity in Baldwin County Court. From here, a judge will likely request that the presumed father undergo DNA paternity testing to verify his biological status and establish paternity.

Paternity Programs in Milledgeville, GA

The state of Georgia offers the Putative Father Registry (PFR) program to men who believe they have fathered a child. In cases where the mother is preventing the child from having contact with the presumed father or the man does not know where the child is currently residing, the putative father registry helps protect his paternal rights.

While this is not a method of establishing paternity, registered individuals will receive notice when a child is involved in a legal hearing, such as an adoption hearing, or if the mother releases her parental rights. From here, a man can seek custody by filing a motion to establish paternity, where DNA testing will need to be used to verify he is the child's biological father.
